The difficult cliffs in the foothills of central Himalaya zone offer the homage to the world’s largest honey bee colony. They are Apis Laborious and Apis dorsal.

Honey haunting takes place in the village of Ghana Pokhari and Ghale Gaun which are beautiful traditional villages. To reach the village one has to drive from Kathmandu to Khudi.

This Honey haunting ritual begins with certain kind of prayer and flower, fruits and grain offerings.

After that the haunters lit fire below the cliff. Thus, this smoke will make the bees leave their comb and fly away. Now, the haunter climb up the cliff with the help of the ladder made from rope.
